Summary
Switzerland is known for its high standard of living and well-developed private banking market, as well as a favorable tax system kept in check by each of the 26 Swiss cantons. These factors, along with the country's favorable level of economic stability, make Switzerland an attractive location for HNW expat investors. While the HNW segment is forecast to grow at an annual rate of over 5% between 2016 and 2020, the rest of the country's affluent population is expected to develop at a much slower pace.

Key Findings
- Switzerland is one of the largest offshore centers in the world, but increased pressure on information exchange has impacted its attractiveness for tax and offshore purposes.

- Nearly half of non-resident deposits are sourced from the Americas, accounting for the largest share of total non-resident retail deposits in Switzerland.

- At the end of 2014, of the 6.6 million adult individuals living in Switzerland an estimated 74.5% could be considered affluent. The country has by far one of the highest levels of affluent and HNW individuals among sizable economies.

- HNW individuals in Switzerland allocate 81.6% of their assets to traditional liquid investments. The Swiss market has a well-balanced allocation outside of deposits, although these still account for 32.8% of total retail investments.

- Switzerland has signed numerous agreements to improve collaboration with other nations, and previously reached a Model II Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act agreement with the US. From January 1, 2017, Switzerland will also start exchanging information under the OECD's Common Reporting Standard.
